People Spot Missiles

The People Spot Missiles are teaching letters on a variety of
subjects.

Ezekiel 34
I strive to read a chapter in the Old Testament and a chapter in the
New Testament each day.  I had been wading through Ezekiel and came
to chapter 34.  I have read it before but my reaction was woweee!!!!  
Let me share some thought

The Mystery of Giving
As a young man, I felt I couldn’t afford to tithe. As a mature man, I feel
that I can’t afford not to tithe. Somehow it seems that the only stuff
that we will keep will be what we give away.

Beware of the Enemy
I have heard the discussions of spiritual warfare. In the early days of my
ministry, I didn’t pay much attention.  I assumed that some people
simply blamed their incompetence on the devil as an easy out.
Believe me, some may have used that excuse. There is more to the
story.

The Rest of the Story
Without people there is no ministry. My friends, we are in the people
business. Because we are in the people business, we need to look for
the rest of the story in the lives of our people. That is the only way we
can truly minister

Leadership
I was recently asked why a certain group of churches had not fared well. I
gave a simplistic answer. “It is leadership!” I knew that I had to expand on
that comment.

Upward or Outward
I was talking with a younger servant of our Lord during a video session.  
He used the phrase “is it upward or outward.”  It was the first time I
had heard those two words put together. Upward implies growing the
local church larger.  Outward implies spreading the church by the
beginning of new congregations.

Who Touched Me?
A woman had been sick for years.  She had spent all she had on the
doctors of the day.  They could do nothing for her.  She heard about
Jesus and thought, “if I can just touch the hem of his garment, I will be
healed.”  She worked her way through the crowd and reached out her
hand and touched the hem of his cloak.  Immediately, she felt the rush
of healing go through her body.  On March 25, 2012 I went into the
hospital.  I was very ill. I am very grateful to the doctors and nurses
who provided care for me. But, I know in my heart that it was the
touch of Jesus that healed me..

Weeds in the Garden
As I lamented over the weeds in my lawn, a strange thought came to
mind. I wondered how many weed-like, random ideas were cluttering
up my thought life.

The Genius of the Class
For a number of years I have been teaching People Spot Principles. One
of those core principles is the number of small groups in your church
that affects attendance potential. What kind of small groups are there?

Impact of Demographics
Over the years, I have been told, “Jim, you don’t get it.  A churchwill
grow if the demographics of the community are right.”  I just chuckle.
Growing a church is not a simple matter

Are You In The Game?
Several years ago a new football coach arrived at a Division 1school.  
His theme was, “are you in the game?” This is a difficult time for
Christianity.  It’s politically correct to belittle the Christian faith.  The
question is, “Are you in the game or are you hiding in the stands
where no one can see you?”

Church 101, Part 2
Just as there are 4 critical ministry areas that must be addressed by
any healthy church,  there are 4 logistical barriers that must be
understood and recognized in any healthy church.  These barriers are
as real and formidable as the cement barriers on a super highway.

Church 101, Part 1
Any church that is serious about advancing its ministry must creatively
and effectively address 4 critical ministry areas. There is no choice in
this matter. These are requirements. To ignore one of these areas will
hinder the ministry of your church. To be lacking in two of them can
be fatal

Full Service vs. Quality
People in the small church, as already defined, are intimidated by the
mega church 1 mile down the road. They forget the genius of the small
church. What is that? It is intimacy

Understanding Hope
People will fail us, churches will fail us, systems will fail us,
technology will fail us,
education will fail us, and government will fail
us.  There is only
one place where we can place our hope that will
never
fail.  That is in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
